Nyah Project
Travel Awakens Leaders

Our Work


Our Work

We develop youth leaders through transformative experiences abroad.  This connection to new cultures through service allows them to discover their true leadership purpose.
Each year we select a talented cohort of diverse teens from underserved communities as Nyah Project Fellows.  

We expose them to prominent leaders from the civic, business and professional community, both locally and abroad.  

We provide intensive training in human factor leadership, social entrepreneurship and experiential learning in amazing international destinations, including Ghana, Costa Rica, South Africa, and Namibia.

Our Pillars


Fellows set measurable goals and learn to inspire and guide others towards achieving them. Our fellows master the skills required collaborate, communicate, solve problems and resolve conflicts effectively. 


Fellows experience increased confidence as they learn how to demonstrate compassion toward others through experiential learning and service opportunities abroad. 


Fellows gain an expanded global network and greater appreciation for cultural differences and diversity. 


Fellows learn the importance of social responsibility and are empowered to become engaged social entrepreneurs and community leaders. 


The costs of each fellowship is underwritten entirely by generous supporters who, like us, believe travel is life changing and all deserve the opportunity to experience it.


of our fellows are accepted into college/university.

of our fellows are awarded academic or merit based scholarships.


We firmly believe that young minds are like parachutes.  
They only function when open to the world.

This is our journey.
